Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977; middle name sometimes written Aron) was an American singer, actor and musician. A cultural icon, he is commonly known simply as "Elvis", and is also sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll" or "The King".

The Rise And Fall Of Brian Schweitzer The former Montana governor loves an audience, and for a while, he had one. How Schweitzer for President was built and broken.
The sun was setting on Memorial Day when Brian Schweitzer called.
